With most of the basic issues sorted, it is time to add some confidence miles to the Condor. That involved a 50 mile loop which would test performance and fuel mileage. Once it warms up, which can take a while, the bike is a blast to ride. It keeps up with in-town traffic, and is light enough to be very maneuverable. On a long stretch, I had it up over 100kph for about a minute. Long enough to see that it felt strong and returned to idle without issue. The rest of the loop was back roads where the Condor handled itself very well. Something about the rugged feel and the utilitarian nature of the machine makes it fun to ride. It does attract attention though, so stops are longer than planned…..
